Box lacrosse, also known as indoor lacrosse, is an indoor version of lacrosse played in Canada and becoming very popular in the US. Box lacrosse is played between two teams of six players, in a hockey rink with a turf surface. Due to the presence of hockey boards, there are fewer balls out of play, fewer stoppages in play, and more rebounds.


  1. The speed is way faster than anything you would see outdoors.  It makes playing outside seem like going in slow motion.
  2. Playing in closer spaces means your stick skills have to be tighter and quicker. Your stick handling improves because there is no room for error, quite literally.
  3. Shots come hard and fast. Goalies see more shots in a shorter period of time. Their hands and reaction time become much quicker.

Winter Box Lacrosse


Box lacrosse sessions will be held at the Midland Civic Arena on Wednesdays and Thursdays from Nov through Feb. Each session will consist of one hour of scrimmaging.

Spots are limited. Note that we will not run the "dome league" at the bubble in Auburn this year.

No special "box" protective gear will be needed. Field lacrosse protective gear will be adequate (for boys, that means: helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, mouth guard, and cup).

High school players who are registered for a high school session may also play in the Men's sessions but only if an adult from the same family is registered and playing. Individuals of all skill and experience levels are encouraged to play in the Men's sessions. If we get enough Men's registrations to cover the cost, we can add additional dates to the schedule for the Men.
